parmesan cheese is not vegetarian
Parmesan cheese isn’t vegan, but it can be vegetarian. There are two issues with cheese for vegans, one being that it’s a dairy product taken from cows, the other being that cheeses contain rennet obtained from the stomach lining of slaughtered animals. People mean different things by the word vegetarian. Some vegetarians will eat cheese because dairy and animal derived rennet don’t bother them, others won’t because they see animal derived rennet as essentially the same as meat itself. For those in the last camp, there are cheeses available that use non-animal derived rennet. For vegans, there are lots of vegan parmesan substitute recipes online.
How many calories are in the tortilla pizza ? I’m thinking of joking second nature recipes look great along with the nutrion education etc
Hi Joanne, thanks for your interest in our programme! The Second Nature programme isn’t a calorie-counting method, as we know this isn’t a sustainable approach for most people. Instead, we’ll educate you on nutrition and provide the tools for you to eat healthily and lose weight without counting calories. It can also be quite difficult to accurately estimate someones true calorie requirement, therefore we prefer to work with you to improve your intuitive eating and make the most of your natural hunger cues.

I find all quite confusing and look forward to receiving some guidance from you.
